TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Graph Blockchain Inc. (“Graph” or “Company”) (CSE: GBLC) is very pleased to announce that in collaboration with Datametrex AI Limited (“Datametrex”, TSXV: DM), discussions have been held with senior officers of a multi-national conglomerate in conjunction with Counsellors from the Canadian Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Agriculture, to provide Blockchain logistics and Global Supply Chain Management solutions in relation to Canadian beef importation.

In partnership with Datametrex, Graph was invited to the Canadian Embassy in Seoul, Korea, to discuss building supply chain management and logistics solutions, leveraging Datametrex’s expertise in AI, in combination with Graph’s high development proficiency of blockchain data management and analytics platforms in the logistics and global trade sector.

As reported in the Beef Quarterly Research Report published by Rabobank in August 2018 (click here), North Asia, and more specifically Japan and South Korea, have been increasing their beef imports over the past year, with the highest rise in imports since 2002.  With global concerns arising over Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad cow disease, a major point and condition of the parties involved in the meeting was the quality assurance of imported beef.  In addition, the blockchain based solutions will include development of reporting and auditing systems for tracking and tracing, quality control, delivery, payments, and quotas.

“The successive wins building prototype’s for multi-nationals has helped us reach this otherwise hard to attain opportunity.  We’re excited to be a part of the expert teams leading this initiative in collaboration with Datametrex, and we look forward to seeing what other doors this opens,” says Peter Kim, CEO of the Company.

 “This represents a fantastic opportunity for both Datametrex and Graph as both companies will work together to provide the solution and integration of this innovative platform. We are thrilled to work with the Canadian Governments and their embassy representatives on a solution that will help position Canadian farmers for expansion into new markets,” says Andrew Ryu, Chairman and CEO of Datametrex.
